Weekend Observations


I'm a little late with this one but, technically, it's still the weekend (Canada Day weekend) ;) How was your weekend?

I received a copy of Canadian Living magazine (thanks Brett!) featuring a story I shot awhile back. "Trash to Treasure" features the talented Colleen Sawatsky, of Vintage Home, and her patio make-over.  Heather helped with the styling. Here's a peek....




I also added some prints to my etsy shop. A series of images of Salton Sea and a couple of pink houses....



Thanks for stopping by!
Back soon,
janis

Enraptured by your Salton Sea photos...I felt a warm breeze and think I saw a tumble weed flit across my computer screen.

Hope you had a lovely Canada day! I hummed your national anthem in my head a few times yesterday in honor of it :)

Isn't the Salton Sea bizzarro? Thanks for sharing your images.

Lovely pictures, love the table with the mirror top! The pink house is adorable.

We picked up a second hand coffee table this weekend, cleaned it up. I made cushions so we can rest our feet on the tabletop. Did lots or organizing about the place, felt good to get things done. Have a great rest of the week Janis!
